The Dance Bar Association said that it is set to move to Supreme Court on March 28 if the Maharashtra government fails to issue them licenses as directed by the Apex court.
The Supreme Court on March 2 asked the State Government to start issue licences to dance bars by March 15. It had ordered that CCTV camera be installed at the entrance of bars and not in the restaurant or the permit area or the performance area which was requested by the State Government. Following the order, 150 bars sought a licence to hold live dance performances. The ban on dance bars was lifted after the Apex Court’s order but the State Government is not allowing to open it. They will wait till March 28 and if licence are not granted by then, we will move to court then, said the association.
